Mark Azopardi was born in London and is an entirely self-taught artist. He now lives in York. He mostly works in pure watercolour, or a combination of watercolour and pencil.
His shell life-compositions show an amazing eye for detail, colour and composition. He sees these shell paintings as the paintings where he pushes himself technically; others often don’t believe they are genuine paintings as the work is so fine. Perhaps even more impressively, as he is self-taught, he has learnt these techniques by studying old masters and their techniques.
He paints with the shells in front of him either set singularly or in a composition with pebbles, driftwood or feathers. His aim is to show the shells to their best advantage and engage the viewer in their natural beauty.
Natalia says "I never tire of looking at these watercolours- they are just so beautifully executed"
